"Burn Baby Burn" - Tyree Boyd-Pates

Tyree Boyd-Pates is a dynamic history curator, professor, writer, and speaker who expounds on Black culture from a millennial vantage and mobilizes communities of color.

"Burn Baby, Burn: Historical Reflections of Los Angeles's Uprisings" is a talk that revisits how in Los Angeles, CA, uprisings and rebellions are not merely caused by filmed accounts of police brutality. Instead, they are brought about from decades of racist policy, police repression, and inequitable conditions (housing, education, medically) for communities of color - especially for African Americans - causing them to erupt.
